I seek to serve as State President of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida (DBCF) because there is a need for CHANGE – we need Transparency & Fairness, Efficient Communication & Planning, Solid Infrastructure & Execution, and an Energetic Voice & Presence for the People.  I lift the theme “Let’s Build Black Power: Economic, Political, Social, Educational” as only through an affirmative focus of Building Black Power, will the DBCF flourish to maximum potential. Building economically on all fronts is directly related to political, social and educational growth.

​ I further seek the President office to Lead the DBCF in an inclusive manner – embracing and utilizing all the knowledge, experience, skill and talent we have across the Great State of Florida.  I lead by example, for I can’t expect anything of others that I don’t expect out of myself. There are some who like to be in charge, I actually like to Lead and Lead through servant leadership – Showing Respect and Responsiveness to ALL DBCF Members.

You entrusted me as First Vice President, Delivering the R-6 Power Initiative to Re-Energize, Re-Educate, Re-Engage, Re-Invest, Rebuild and Relate in serving the Caucus. You entrusted me as Orange County President for four (4) years, Delivering and Building from a membership of just 12 and 1 elected official to over 120 and 25 elected officials (OrangeCountyDBC.org) . I now ask you to entrust me to deliver yet again. I request your support and your VOTE for President of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida.
